portable monitor (tablet)

Hi, guys!

I am on a very tight budget but need a second monitor -  mostly for word and 3d modelling, sometimes for programming, so things like refresh rate, resolution and brightness aren't too important as long as text is readable. I am usually on the go, so big monitor is not an option. I am wondering, has anybody tried to use a cheap chinese tablet as a second screen? is it useable?

tablets usually only have output ports and no video inputs, you will need to search for a while to find one that has an actual input.

There is software that allows you to extend your desktop to a tablet Android/iOS.
But this comes at the cost of latency.
You'd also need WiFi, the crappier the WiFi the crappier it is going to be to use it.

yup. thats what I was thinking about. wifi should not be a problem, just thinking how big is the latency, like is it possible to watch vids or do something else than reading, asuming that wifi is reasonably fast. image.png.d978a58a7577be733e9bd089853fedbf.png
